On Wednesday 9th May 2018, following on from residents’ concerns regarding drug dealing and ASB issues, Bethnal Green SNT officers carried out patrols and conducted searches near SIDNEY HOUSE, OLD FORD ROAD, E2. During the area search we found 30 small bags each containing an amount of herbal cannabis inside. This was found under the seat of a hidden/ abandoned motor scooter parked nearby, which by the pungent smell alone, drew officers towards it. Another nearby search also recovered a hidden 8 inch bladed kitchen knife as well as a 20 inch bladed zombie-style knife.
Both drugs and weapons have now been removed from the streets of Bethnal Green Ward. It also sends out a message to those hanging around, that police are aware of what they are doing and also shows that we take residents’ concerns seriously
As mentioned in the previous post, residents wishing to become members of the Safer Neighbourhood Panel for Bethnal Green please register with OWL. The next panel meeting, by invitation only, will take place at the Glasshouse.
A leaseholder neighbour from Piggott House had his door kicked in at 18:15 yesterday evening, he says somebody had gone through his belongings but nothing was apparently taken.
Neighbours heard a noise but thought nothing of it.
It is difficult to hear where a noise comes from and finding out what it is. On estates noises are hard to source; and with building work going on in many places it is hardly possible to call emergency services for every aggressive noise one hears.
Whilst I do not want to advocate the view that it is the dwellers fault that their doors kicks in easily and they make it easy for the burglars, I would still recommend that residents install a multi-bolt secure door.
Whilst I do not want to advertise any particular manufacturer, a Google search results in many suitable doors being available.
Perhaps if any readers have seen anything yesterday and retrospectively remember any useful information please inform your local Safer Neighbourhoods Officer or ring 101 or crime stoppers help out anonymously as well on the number 0800 555 111.
I am an old hand in electronic communiations. I can immediately tell when an e-mail is malicious, fraudulent or plain nonsense.
Many fraudulent e-mails appear genuine and can fool recipients.
An easy trick to tell if an e-mail is from the promised sender is click on the contact and see the e-mail address it comes from. If it pretends to be from a bank but the e-mail address is obviously different from the bank’s domain, delete the whole thing and if you have the time (recommended) inform the institution the e-mail pretends to come from.
